TV series Review: TWISTED

twisted“Twisted” centers on a charismatic 16-year-old with a troubled past, who recently reconnected with his two female best friends from childhood. He becomes the prime suspect when a fellow student is surprisingly found dead in her home.

Formerly known as “Socio”, the series was renamed to be more emblematic of its murder mystery format. Due to the Sandy Hook shootings in late 2012, there was some concern that ABC Family would not pick up the show. Executive produced by Gavin Polone, David Babcock and Adam Milch,
who also wrote the pilot.

TV Series: Continuum – Season 2

Continuum – Season 2

Continuum Season 2

Reunion Pictures, in association with Shaw Media, recently announced that production has started on Season 2 of the hit Showcase show “Continuum.” Season 2 is slated to premiere in Canada on Shaw Media’s specialty channel Showcase in April 2013.

In Season 1 Kiera Cameron (played by Rachel Nichols), a cop from the year 2077 found herself trapped in present-day Vancouver, searching for convicted terrorists from the future, known as Liber8. With unexpected assistance from teen tech genius Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen), Kiera desperately tried to bring down the terrorists before they changed the course of history forever. In Season 2 Kiera continues her uneasy alliance with her partner, Vancouver Police detective Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster) and grapples with the big question that closed the first season – why was I sent here? While Alec struggles to understand the implications of the mysterious message he received from his future self in last season’s finale, the Liber8 terrorists become more strategic, although just as lethal.

“Season 2 will see Kiera pitted against Liber8 while trying to find a way back to 2077,” said creator/executive producer Simon Barry, “This season will feature the best elements of Season 1 in addition to some new characters and storylines that expand the universe of Continuum.”

The Americans (2013 TV series)

image“The Americans” is a period drama about the complex marriage of two KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington D.C. shortly after Ronald Reagan is elected President.

The arranged marriage of Philip and Elizabeth Jennings, who have two children — 13-year-old Paige and 10-year-old Henry, who know nothing about their parents’ true identity — grows more passionate and genuine by the day, but is constantly tested by the escalation of the Cold War and the intimate, dangerous and darkly funny relationships they must maintain with a network of spies and informants under their control. Complicating their relationship further is Philip’s growing sense of affinity for America’s values and way of life. Tensions also heighten upon the arrival of a new neighbor, Stan Beeman, an FBI agent. Stan and his partner, Agent Chris Amador, are members of a new division of Counterintelligence tasked with fighting against foreign agents on U.S. soil, including KGB Directorate S illegals, Russian spies posing as Americans.

New medical TV Series

monday mornings 1Monday Mornings is an American medical drama television series. It is based on a novel of the same name by Sanjay Gupta.

In May 2012, U.S. TV channel TNT placed a ten-episode order for the series.[1]It premiered on Monday, February 4, 2013. The series follows the professional and personal lives of five doctors at the fictional Chelsea General Hospital in Portland, Oregon.

MONDAY MORNINGS: MEDIOCRE MEDICINE

by Angel Cohn February 5, 2013 6:00 AM

I’ll admit that I have a problem: I have a weakness for David E. Kelley’s melodramatic brand of drama… no matter how ridiculous it may be. I sat through all ofAlly McBeal (against my better judgment, mostly), adored The Practice and was probably the one person who sat through the short-lived The Wedding Bells (even though it nearly physically killed me). I even watched Harry’s Law far longer than I should have (though not after they stopped selling shoes at her law firm). But even though I also have a fondness for soapy medical dramas, this new TNT series is going to be a quite the challenge to watch on a regular basis without a heavy dose of Red Bull.

Sure, they did well casting some eye candy in the form of Battlestar Galactica alum Jamie Bamber, but after watching far too much Law & Order: UK, it’s strange to hear him back using his American accent. And there are some other credible actors up on the show, such as Bill Irwin, Alfred Molina and Ving Rhames. But somehow the show is just … boring.

monday mornings 2The gist is that these high-pressured surgeons go about their business, but get called into weekly morbidity and mortality meetings where they have to justify their actions if there is a lawsuit or if a patient wound up dead. But if these meetings are every Monday morning, why does everyone need to get paged with a 311.7 code? And why does it seem like they are sometimes held more than once a week? In the first episode alone, they’ve already sort of invalidated the title. And that’s fine, because it is a really stupid title. It tells you absolutely nothing about what the show is about. It seems like it should be about a weekly newsmagazine, or a schoolteacher or Garfield the cat or the Bangles… not a group of surgeons.

Dr. Harding Hooten (yes, that’s really the name of the character played by Alfred Molina) is the big cheese, and the one in charge of being a hard-ass in the M&Ms (not the candy). But he has the luxury of having lots more information than the surgeons are provided, which he gets after the fact, making me think that what these doctors really need are more assistant types who can help get info about patients before they start cutting them open. The first guy in the spotlight, Dr. Martin, gets summarily fired for being a 007 type and killing through carelessness, but Dr. Villanueva (Ving Rhames) gets ticked about the fact that this doctor isn’t getting a mark on the equivalent of his permanent record. And naturally he storms out in a totally professional manner. I think it’s meant to show that he’s passionate and to help explain the fact that he sits in what looks like a corner in the hallway at 2 AM doling out sage advice to those around him while scarfing down some Chinese food.

There’s also Dr. Tierney (Bill Irwin), who had all of about three things to say in the pilot. He mostly seems to be there to fill the vague villain role, wanting to do things that help the hospital make money. And to look disparagingly at all the other doctors around. And there’s also Dr. Sung Park (Keong Sim), who is abrasive and lacks a mastery of the English language, but does brilliant neurosurgery, though he also seems like an afterthought.

monday mornings 3There’s also the requisite woman with the sad love life, Dr. Napur (Sarayu Rao), whose almost fiancée (he proposed and then took the ring back) dumped her because she was too much of a workaholic. But at least she has a vaguely contentious/flirtatious relationship with Dr. Lieberman (Jonathan Silverman) to fall back on. Their bickering even helps save a patient. Let it be known that Silverman isn’t funny here, or seemingly even trying to be, but that he could have actually added some levity to this show.

And the show wouldn’t be complete without the “will they or won’t they?” relationship between Dr. Ty Wilson (Bamber) and Dr. Ridgeway (Jennifer Finnigan). What’s a medical drama without a codependent relationship between two colleagues that may or may not be in a sexual relationship (though we do see that she has a significant other who ignores her). Anyway, their first big case in the pilot involves a little boy who has a huge brain tumor and doesn’t make it through the surgery. (Kill a little kid in the first episode? Way to endear yourself to an audience). It hits Ty especially hard and we see flashbacks to a young Dr. Wilson getting some bad news about a loved one. And judging by the second episode I got to preview, it isn’t a case that he ends up letting go any time soon.

The most exciting part of the entire premiere was the patient who was brought in at the end suffering from something known as internal decapitation. Now that sounded promising, but of course, we only see a bit of that surgery and didn’t find out the outcome. What a letdown. Much like the promising cast in this underwhelming show.

“Ripper Street” New UK TV Series

Ripper_Street_titlcardRipper Street is a BBC mini-series set in Whitechapel in London’s East End in 1889, six months after the infamous Jack the Ripper murders. The series stars Matthew Macfadyen,Jerome Flynn and Adam Rothenberg. The first episode was broadcast on 30 December 2012 as part of BBC One’s Christmas 2012 package, and will also form part of BBC America’s Dramaville starting on 19 January 2013.

Plot

London in April 1889, six months since the last Jack the Ripper killing, and the story of H Division responsible for policing one and a quarter square miles of East London with a population of 67,000 of the poor and dispossessed. H Division was charged with keeping order in the chaos of Whitechapel. Its men had hunted Jack the Ripper and failed to find him, and with more women being murdered on the streets of Whitechapel the police begin to wonder if the killer has returned.

Between the factories, rookeries, chop shops, brothels and pubs Detective Inspector Edmund Reid (Matthew Macfadyen), haunted by a tragic past mistake, is accompanied by the brawn of Detective Sergeant Bennett Drake (Jerome Flynn) and the brilliance of the US Army surgeon and one-time Pinkerton detective, Captain Homer Jackson (Adam Rothenberg).

Their paths cross with Tenter Street brothel madam Long Susan (MyAnna Buring), who came to London with Jackson – their relationship more and more uneasy, now that Jackson is starting to prefer one of her most profitable girls, Rose Erskine (Charlene McKenna).

Newspaperman Fred Best (David Dawson), always ready to sensationalize a story for profit, knows Reid’s past mistake.

Episodes / Date released

1. “I Need Light” 30 December 2012

When the body of violinist Maude Thwaites is found it bears all the hallmarks of a Ripper killing. However, an autopsy by Jackson suggests it is a copy-cat killing, and in the face of opposition from journalist Fred Best and Inspector Frederick Abberline (Clive Russell), Detective Inspector Reid and his team enter into a world of early photographic pornography and one of the first ‘snuff films’, with the discovery on moving film of Thwaites being strangled. The investigation becomes more urgent when it is discovered that Long Susan has received payment for the services of Rose, who had already appeared in risque photos, and another prostitute from their suspect.

2. “In My Protection”  6 January 2013

When Ernest Manby (David Coon), a 60-year-old toy maker is found beaten to death the Whitechapel Vigilance Committee claim that 14-year-old Thomas Gower (Giacomo Mancini) is responsible. Reid – his conscience challenged by a radical lawyer called Eagles (Hugh O’Conor) and orphanage governess Deborah Goren (Lucy Cohu) – tests the security of the investigation. Meanwhile, Jackson’s drinking and gambling have led to the loss of the pendant that ties him to his American past – a past that he and Long Susan fear will now be exposed. Reid and Drake find themselves under attack at Miss Goren’s orphanage by the rest of Gower’s vicious child gang and their brutal master, Carmichael (Joe Gilgun).

The Walking Dead: a TV Series

The Walking Dead tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse. It follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home.

The comic goes on to explore the challenges of life in a world overrun by zombies who take a toll on the survivors, and sometimes the interpersonal conflicts present a greater danger to their continuing survival than the zombies that roam the country. Over time, the characters are changed by the constant exposure to death and some grow willing to do anything to survive.

Wikipedia: The Walking Dead is an American post-apocalyptic horror television series developed for television by Frank Darabont and based on the ongoing comic book series, The Walking Dead, by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard. The series centers on a small group of survivors led by Sheriff’s Deputy Rick Grimes and his family.

The series premiered on October 31, 2010, and is broadcast on the cable television channel AMC in the United States.

The first season premiered to universal acclaim and was nominated for several awards, including the Best Television Series Drama at the 68th Golden Globe Awards. Based on its reception, AMC renewed the series for a second season of 13 episodes which premiered on October 16, 2011.

On October 25, 2011, the series was renewed for a third season by AMC after more high ratings.

Series Overview: The Walking Dead tells the story of the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse; it follows a small group of survivors, traveling across the desolate United States in search of a new home away from the shuffling hordes of the undead (or “walkers” as they are called by the survivors). The plot is focused primarily on the human element of a post-apocalyptic world and the way the struggling human survives. The group is led by Rick Grimes, who was a sheriff’s deputy in a small Georgia town before the zombie outbreak. As their situation grows more hazardous, the group’s desperation to survive pushes them to the brink of insanity. At every turn they are faced with the unbearable horrors that come from having the dead walk again, the changing dynamic of their group, as well as facing hostility from the scattered remains of a struggling human populace who are focused on their own survival, now that the structures of global society have collapsed.

Season 1 (2010)

The first season centers on Deputy Rick Grimes, who was shot and ended up in a coma for an indeterminate time. When he awakens, he finds a post-apocalyptic world overrun with the walking dead. He leaves the hospital and discovers his wife and son are missing. Rick arms himself and, after hearing a rumor from a survivor, begins a perilous journey for Atlanta, where the CDC is said to have set up a quarantined safe-zone in the city and where his family may be hiding. During his journey, Rick sees the devastation left by the “walkers” (a nickname given to the zombies). Upon reaching Atlanta, he soon discovers that the city is overrun by the undead and is no longer safe.

A few miles outside the city, Rick’s wife Lori and his son Carl have been hiding from the walkers with Shane Walsh, Rick’s former colleague and best friend. They have established a camp with a small group of survivors from around the country. After being rescued from Atlanta by the group and reunited with Lori and Carl, Rick assumes a command position with Shane and must take responsibility not only for his family but also for the survival of the group. Part of the group goes back into Atlanta to recover weapons, where they come into conflict with other survivors, but Rick soon eases the tensions. However, on their return to their camp, they find it has been nearly overrun by walkers. Hoping to find medical treatment for an injured member, the remainder decide to return to Atlanta and seek aid from the CDC.

In the CDC, all but one staff member (Dr. Edwin Jenner) have fled or killed themselves. Dr. Jenner explains his research into the cause of the “zombie apocalypse”. But the CDC building is not the safe haven the group believed. The following day, lack of fuel for the generators causes certain safety protocols to be initiated, which will result in the destruction of the CDC. Dr. Jenner explains that the French may have found a cure, as they were the only nation whose scientists stayed in their labs. Dr. Jenner elects to stay in the CDC despite the impending explosion. Before the group flees, Dr. Jenner whispers something unknown into Rick’s ear. The group escapes just as Jenner and Jacqui are killed by the building’s self-destruct sequence.

Season 2 (2011–2012)

The second season premiered on October 16, 2011 and will feature 13 episodes. At a 2011 Paley Center for Media panel, it was announced that the second season will feature Grimes’ group of survivors leaving Atlanta for the countryside, including the Greene family farm, a setting in the comic book series. Filming of season 2 began in June 2011 in the greater Atlanta area. Prior to the start of season 2, a 6-part webisode series aired October 3, 2011 on AMC’s website. The webisodes detail the events just when the outbreak began, specifically the life of Hannah, also known as “”, who appeared in the first episode of the series.

Rick Grimes and the survivors leave Atlanta and head to Fort Benning. Along the way, they come across a traffic jam of vehicles on I-85 and they scavenge supplies from several vehicles. The group then hides as walkers approach in a “herd”; T-Dog receiving an injury to his arm from a crashed car and Sophia is chased by two walkers and runs off into the woods. Rick goes after her and tells her to hide under some branches by a creek. Rick kills both of the walkers but finds that Sophia has gone missing. The group begins to search for Sophia, but are unsuccessful. Carl is accidentally shot by man named Otis who was hunting for deer. Otis takes Rick, Shane, and Carl to a farm house where Carl is treated by a veterinarian. Shane and Otis head to a local high school in search for more medical supplies but are trapped by walkers. Shane returns to the farm without Otis, telling the others at the farm that Otis sacrificed himself in hopes of keeping Shane and Carl alive, while Shane fled. It is later revealed that Shane actually shot Otis in the leg to distract the walkers in order to save himself and the medical supplies.

 

 

Season 3

AMC renewed The Walking Dead for a third season on October 25, 2011, after the season two premiere broke cable ratings records in the 18–49 demographic, as announced by AMC president, Charlie Collier, “We are thankful for everyone’s contribution in front of and behind the camera as we continue to make The Walking Dead a unique television experience. And, we are so proud as it continues to set viewership records around the world.”
